parents more choices to put their children in an environment that they can succeed. it's an idea that works. we can look around the country at states that try to create a more business-friendly environment, not because they're for businesses or for any political reason or they're for special interests, but they know the only way to get jobs and prosperity and create opportunity is to create an environment where businesses can thrive. we make it political here. and we ask our constituents to make choices between employers and employees. but states like texas have created a business-friendly environment with lower taxes and less regulation. they've passed some laws that reduce the risk of just frivolous lawsuits. and what they've seen is businesses moving to their state. they've seen jobs and opportunity created not for the top 2%, but expanding a middle class, creating more opportunities and more tax revenues to do the things at the state government level that we all want for everyone that lives there. this is not for a few. this is for 100%. and you see specials now on tv compari

for the environment of roe v wade. using jane roe and misleading the american people that abortion would be good for our children. we have seen millions of children that are lost to abortion . ireland can look at other count ropes and it is something to fight for . planned parent hood they were with false cases trying to trick and mislead people. it is it happening in ireland. right now the lesson is clear. don't go the way of the misleading abortion trea trying to make a profit after the pain of women and hurt for the women and children. america looks to you as an inspirational point . we institute the right to life in our own nations. >> if i believe all that i am told by the liberals. this is the important thing they want the right to have an abortion . both of you are young women and neither one of you feel that the important thing in your life is to have access to abortion. are we misled to believe that this is what women want more than anything? >> yeah, absolutely governor, we have . the reason why ireland matters so much for global abortion campaigners like planned parent hood. irlapped
an environment there was spirit and was spun by the development of late george w. norris who came to nebraska and fought for the unicameral legislature and nonpartisan. some people say he did it because he wanted to save money. i am sure it saves money to have one house, but the main reason he did it is to get rid of the conference committees that we go through the back here that are a puzzle. i was at a conference committee on the football field and bate changes five times before they blow the whistle. so what we have in nebraska is something that is officially nonpartisan and looks nonpartisan, so that is a backdrop for me. so when i come here in a partisan environment, i said i don't have to subscribe to partisan environment. mauney goal and my team as the governor is to run nebraska, not republican or democratic or east or west urban, i represent all the people even those that voted against me. i've taken that approach back here to represent all the people, not just other people. >> did you ever think about becoming an independent? >> the democratic party never pushed it out to greet you
of the hysteria that created the environment for roe vs wade, using jane roe, who later recanted and said he she didn't want an abortion and misleading statistics, somehow abortion would be good for our children and we've seen millions of children lost to the united states and millions a year. and ireland could say their protection of human right is something to fight for. and they have cases they brought before the european court and some were thrown out, false cases again trying to manufacture facts, trick people, mislead people and happening again in ireland. i think right now the lesson is clear, don't go the way of the misleading abortion industry trying to make a profit off of the pain of women and hurt women and children, and stand for human rights like you've done and america looks to you as a inspiration point and reinstitute the right to life in our own nation.

with other guests as well, that talked about the merger and acquisition environment. it is a glaring lack of activity. i don't want to make too much of it, take a look. you can see how they've done this year. in line with 2010. up ever so slightly from 2011. remember, we have record low borrowing rates in the high yield market, not to mention from banks as well. leverage ratios have crept up, so you can get debt that equals 5.5, or 6, or even more times the company you're acquiring. all of that would argue for more activity on the part of the leverage buyers. we've had jim woolery at jpmorgan saying, yeah, i can cut you a $10 million check. we haven't seen the big deals. one reason, simply put, flow begets flow. when there's a lot of activity, you get even more. there is a company looking to be shed of this business, or achoirs another business, they may look to shed another business as well. that might be an audience that private equity is part of. when you aren't having that level of activity, you may not get even more from the lbo. but something we've run up against lately does seem to

'll see prices go up in that environment. a lot of people are not willing to sell. they say the price of my home is still down big time. prices need to go up. >> home prices are in the eyes of the beholder, right? if you're still underwater, you need a dramatic increase in the price of your home in terms of percentages to get back to even. those people aren't going to feel like things are off the bottom. definitely i've seen here in new york city bidding wars on apartments. there have been improvements in some parts of the country. >> the market is percier. i still feel like a loser because of, kayla, what you were saying. i'm still down from where i was. >> you don't want to sell. >> right. anyhow, let's talk about chicago. i'll be there next week with the morning star mutual manager fund of the year. i'm going to find that chicago is going to have the most expensive parking meters in the country. $6.50 per hour down on the loop. four years ago most of the windy city's parking meters cost just 25 cents per hour. this is demand pricing, isn't it, michelle? >> i love it. you let prices
in that environment is to have it both ways. my view is there is too much classified information. my view is there is too much secrecy in general, and we should probably we think a lot of how we do it. i am inclined to want to see diplomats like susan rice to be as candid as possible with the public. there is another view on that, that we spell too many secrets. -- spill too many secrets. host: this goes back to the 9/11 commission and how intelligence is shared amongst agencies. guest: to me, it is one of these fascinating things that always comes up. whenever there is a catastrophe like 9/11 or the u.s.s. cole, everybody always says they did not share the information. one part of the government had one piece and they did not connect the dots. in the intelligence business, you're getting information from very technical sources or wiretaps or satellites that we do not want other people to know about. people in the business want to usually keep the stuff they collect in as small a group responsible in order to avoid the other big problem of moles and so forth. if you look at wikileaks, thi
sustainable future where we are in harmony with the environment and the planet. a lot of corporations are doing those things, but not as well as corporations could. corporations could contribute still more toward human welfare and avoid doing damage in some areas where they do, if only we can correct what i have come to view as a very mistaken and ultimately counterproductive idea that has captured the business world. this is the idea that corporations are run well, when they are run to maximize shareholder value, specifically measured by share price. many people in the room may have the reaction, but isn't that something that has been accepted forever? don't we all know that the purpose of the corporation is to maximize profits for shareholders? i would say no, actually, that is not an idea that has been around forever. that is a pretty new idea. if you were to get in a time machine and go back and study the first eight decades of the 20th century, and it is at the beginning of the 20th century were refer start to see the great public corporations that we think of today when we think
that would emerge into a ground based laboratory. it emerges might put people in a very different environment to go into the unknown. human space flight is probably the most interdisciplinary scientific and technical activity this country can engage in. much broader than biotech and any other fields. you have all fields come together to pull off a successful mission. it is incredibly hard. i would say as part of your portfolio of activities, that humans have to be part of it. they do represent the challenging interdisciplinary problem that is unique. it's to be part of our national portfolio because nothing replaces the symbolism, the emotion, the connection that makes -- to our partners around the world. the international space station is not only an engineering triumph but a diplomatic triumph that has paid great benefits to this country already in terms of building relationships around the world. what national interests do you want it to serve. >> thank you very much. >> i have a feeling general sega wants to add something. >> thank you. the question itself poses one of the key points of o
the question of canada to be cut? is it politically possible in this environment to get enough republicans and democrats to support a deal that the white house wants on deficit reduction? because they been to the altar so many times on this same issue, taxes, medicare, social security, defense spending, you must wonder, if there's any agreement possible. host: first, commented today from the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell, who will join his colleagues later today at the white house. [video clip] >> i told the president last night we would be happy to look at whatever he proposes. the truth is we are coming up against a hard deadline. as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. republicans are not about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats before or just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that would not be fair to the american people. that said, we will see what the president has to propose. members on both sides will review it. then we will decide how best to proceed. hopefully, there's still time for an agreement of some kind
